The iPhone XR was launched in September as the third device in Apple’s 2018 new line-up, and is also the most affordable of the three. While the Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been getting more attention, the iPhone XR is likely to see its own share of success thanks to its lower pricing, with the device starting at Rs 76,900 in India. The ‘affordable’ iPhone XR has now been reviewed by photography specialists DxOMark, and the device has been rated highly.

With an overall score of 101, the Apple iPhone XR is now the top-ranked device with a single-lens setup at the back. This is a significant win for Apple, which faced some criticism and cynicism when it announced the iPhone XR with a single-camera setup, now considered to be antiquated. The device features a 12-megapixel camera at the rear and a 7-megapixel front camera. The iPhone XR scored 103 in photography, and 96 in video.

DxOMark further elaborates that the Apple iPhone XR gets the key photo attributes of exposure, color, detail, noise, and artifacts right with similar performance to that of the Apple iPhone XS Max, while zoom and bokeh capabilities aren’t as strong as the more expensive iPhones thanks to the single-lens setup. Video performance is said to be largely similar to that of the iPhone XS Max.

While the Huawei P20 Pro is currently the top-ranked smartphone on DxOMark with a score of 109, the Apple iPhone XS Max comes second with a score of 105. DxOMark has not officially announced the ratings for some recent launches including the Google Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which are likely to take the top spots. We recently reviewed the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and were highly impressed with camera performance.
